    I ordered this book because it addressed a family’s relocation from Massachusetts to New York, then on to Ohio and finally to McHenry County, Illinois; the same route my ancestors had taken. It is so much more than the story of migration, though. The author gives wonderfully detailed accounts of this family’s life in each of the locales, but also frequently examines other matters that were on the mind of the nation or relative to the time and place. The book is chock-full of maps and delightful illustrations and the bibliography is excellent.

    Ms. Clayson's history of her relative Silas Chatfield is remarkable in its depth of research, relevance to the history of northeastern and mid-western America from the Revolutionary through the Civil Wars (especially 1812), and readability. Her book is not just a genealogy, but also an in-depth look at the times, trials and tribulations our ancestors experienced. I found her "diversions" into such things as clothes making, Mormonism, and pensioner's rights -- to name a few -- utterly fascinating. Clayson's attention to detail and her skill at illustration/layout are also commendable. Everyone should find Silas & Rachel Chatfield an extremely worth read!
